Toluca came into the Estadio Azteca with a solid plan: let America move up on the attack, and exploit the counterattacking opportunities. Well, Meza’s strategy worked perfectly, as Toluca took a 2-0 at the Estadio Azteca in the first leg of the semifinal series against America.
With this score, America is now forced to score three goal at the Estadio Nemesio Diez on Sunday. To defeat Toluca in the aggregate score, America must win 3-1, or with any other result where they score more than three goals and win by a +2 goal margin (4-2, 5-3, etc.). Anything else would mean elimination for America.
Considering Toluca’s outstanding home record, I think it is fair to say that America is done for the year. Enjoy the America 0-2 Toluca highlights:
